Deantoni Parks – Technoself (2015)

Drummer Deantoni Parks is ridiculous…in the greatest way possible.  I first heard of Parks when he was playing in the eclectic New York-based band Kudu around 2001 or so.  Around that same time he also played an insane drum & bass/jungle beat on a track entitled “Frequency One” on DJ Logic’s The Anomaly record (Ropeadope).  At the time, this beat and Parks’ playing blew my mind!

Tomorrow, Parks is releasing a new record entitled Technoself on the Leaving Records/Stones Throw label.  Technoself features Parks solo on a drum kit and sampler played live with no loops or overdubs…and it’s pretty amazing.  Here’s a video of from the 2014 dublab anniversary concert…

The album is currently streaming on Soundcloud but you can buy it in a variety on formats at the Stones Throw online store.  Get it!
